WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Major League Soccer Players Association Sunday night voted to approve a package of economic concessions for the 2020 season, which are modifications to the recently agreed-upon Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The concessions included an extension on the CBA for a year and their agreement to participate in a summer tournament in Orlando, according to an MLSPA press release.
Also included were salary reductions across the entire player pool, reduced team and individual bonuses and additional concessions to existing and future terms of the CBA.
The package has been submitted to the league for a decision by the owners.
“While a difficult vote in incredibly challenging times, it was taken collectively to ensure that players can return to competition as soon as they are safely able to do so,” an MLSPA statement said.
